paint it up, julia s.

i adore this beauty spread from elle germany, march 2005. it's the kind of make up i love in photographs but i can never pull off in real life. i especially love the pink lips. it's such a statement. i'm usually a highlighter, mascara, lipgloss kind of girl but last summer i bought a fuchsia lipstick to try and emulate a stronger look like this. i just can't feel comfortable in it though and i've never worn it out of the house. it just doesn't look like me in the mirror. now, normally i would mention a little something about the photographer of the shoot but i have no idea who it is so instead i'll focus on the model, the lovely julia stegner. the 24 year old german beauty is famous for her many campaigns including running around with anja for chloe. she's also been shot for countless editorials like a favourite desert shoot of mine, seen here. she's a maybelline girl, a victoria's secret angel and most recently she's appeared in the id magazine spread on alexander wang, check her out.

julia has fantastic street style. i love these looks below, especially the center outfit and the plaid.
i love julia's hair. she has a bit of sienna miller in her face which is very apparent in her chloe ads with anja. i think she embodies that bohemian hippie girl look. a newly found favourite.

adore the top four pics and must try that mustard yellow eyeshadow colour. i don't know why I hadn't thought of it before- that shade is perfection on brunettes.

Julia Stegner is so beautiful, the hair, the eyes... she reminds me of an innocent little deer

i totally see the doe eyed thing too. she is so stunning.

i love the pink lip and the yellow shadow look too. i feel like with a simple paired down outfit (like skinnys, ankle boots and a flowy tee) either looks could completely dress you up. i kind of wish i had my own makeup artist to apply it all though.
